ATLANTA, April 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Aaron Rents, Inc. today announced that West Virginia miner Randal McCloy Jr. and seven members of his family are attending the Aaron's Dream Weekend at Talladega Superspeedway as special guests of Aaron's Sales and Lease Ownership President Ken Butler.

Butler extended the invitation to the McCloy family a month earlier when he learned they were NASCAR fans. Aaron's is the entitlement sponsor of this weekend's races, and as such is able to provide Randy and his family with access to events such as the Victory Lane Celebration, the Driver Meeting, Driver Introductions and more.

As part of his ongoing recovery process, McCloy's doctors have encouraged him to spend as much time with his family as possible and to enjoy as much rest and relaxation as he can. According to Ken Butler, "Aaron's is honored to have Randy and his family as our special guests for Dream Weekend. They are wonderful people who obviously have been through a lot and they seem so thrilled to be here for their first NASCAR event."

Aaron's Dream Weekend continues with the running of today's Aaron's 312 Busch Series race. The race will be carried live on FOX starting at 3:00pm Eastern time. The Dream Weekend will conclude with Sunday's Aaron's 499 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series race with live coverage on FOX beginning at 3:00pm Eastern time.
